Little Miss Suzy

It appears little Miss Suzy has come to visit on our patio. We recently moved into our new home and noticed lots of acorns and of course lots of squirrels around the neighborhood.

For the past few days, we noticed one squirrel who loved to visit and run around the patio. She climbed on the park bench and ran across the top of it. She appeared to notice that we were watching her but seemed unfazed by it and certainly not worried that we would harm her.

Today she again went through her antics and then stopped in full view of our back door, stood up on her hind legs and placed her front paws together as if begging for food or praying. She was not put off by us approaching her. Evidently, the people who lived here before us had fed her. Watching her a little longer, we saw that she actually had some acorns stored in a flowerpot where nothing was now blooming.

The choice appears to be up to us at this point. Should we feed her or just leave the flowerpot in place for her to use a storage of her food?

What would you do?

AWWW! Isn't that cute! I would leave the flower pot for her to put her acorns in. Isn't it fun to watch these cute little animals, they look so sweet. Thanks for a nice reminder to stop and enjoy the little things each day!
